Biography

I have a clinical background in community nursing and community service development. I also worked in NHS research management in NHS Lothian for many years developing systems for research governance and research opportunities for NHS staff including developing a clinical academic research careers scheme for Nurses, Midwives and Allied health Professionals.

I maintained academic links throughout my NHS career and having held part time seconded and honorary research fellowships at University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University, I returned to Edinburgh Napier on a part time basis in 2013.

My research interests include the interface between self-care and health care and the introduction of new technologies into health care. My main research focus has been the use of telehealth in personal health maintenance and the management of long term conditions in primary care, but my interest in the introduction of new technologies into healthcare has also extended to acute care settings including neonatal units, critical care and admission of the elderly to hospital.
